Tech’s past: rationalism. Now: imaginative cosmology. Presentation explores soul’s tech engagement through internet, using clinical examples.

Friday, November 17th


ONLINE Lecture

Technology & Soul: Fall 2023


Over the past several centuries technology has increasingly fallen under the disenchanting shadow of rationalistic, Enlightenment philosophy. In this Friday evening presentation we will look at the potentially liberating paradigm shift underway towards a more complex cosmology. This is centered on the reanimation of the imagination begun by depth psychology, especially in the work of C. G. Jung. Tonight, we will explore the use of internet communications as a tool to help locate and examine ways in which the soul engages our technologies, often through its breakdowns. A variety of clinical examples including synchronistic events will be used to provide practical experiences to ground the ideas.
